saturday night. make no mistake, democrats have been fighting successfully against unfair voter i.d. laws and purged lists. but the threat remains, some voting advocates expect a record number of voter challenges. the best advice, vote anyway. don't get bullied at the polls, and don't give up. i'm joined tonight by ohio state senator nina turner, also with us tonight is judith brown dianis, the co-director of the advancement project. judith, let me ask you first, what is the biggest threat at the polls as you see it right now? >> sure. well, thanks for having me, ed. we have moved from politicians who have tried to manipulate the laws to restrict the vote to now these partisan operatives. you know, in ohio you have husted, the secretary of state, who has been on a relentless effort to restrict the vote, who now admits there has been a glitch in the computer system. 33,000 people who registered have not found themselves on the rolls and cannot get their absentee ballots. it is a glitch. then you have true the vote, organizations that say that they're about election integrity who are prepar

to you. no, he doesn't much the president has no such authority, nothing in federal law or the constitution gives any single person the power to postpone a vote for president of the united states. now, congress does have the authority to set the date for presidential elections. the constitution gives the authority to congress and congress has done that. the first tuesday after the first monday in november. it's been that way since the 18 -- roughly 1845. but there is no independent authority other than that to change the date for an election. so a state official, for example, probably couldn't say we're going to hold the elections two days from when they were scheduled. that would cause a problem with whether that state had done the right thing in choosing its presidential electors. congress could certainly change the date. if there's concern about the date for the presidential election with all the disruption from this storm, congress could hustle back into town and change the date. but that might not go down very well with all the states that weren't affected by the st
or are they just making sure? >> i don't think they're worried, the mar ket law school poll has him up by 8 points in wisconsin. i think it's a nice way to close your campaign having tens and thousands of people cheering for the president these days. i think that's why he's here for those great video clips. >> senator, why hasn't paul ryan delivered wisconsin in the polls? the polling has never been favorable for the romney examp and i think we can come to the conclusion just 50 hours away from election day that paul ryan doesn't seem to have had a big impact, if any, on the state of wisconsin. what do you make of that? >> i recall when he first is chose paul ryan. the question was how did we feel about it. one of the things i said we were excited, those of us in wisconsin, for one reason or another. from the democrat's perspective because we knew that paul ryan really does not connect with the values of wisconsin. and him willing to some say put grandmother over on the cliff with a voucher system in medicare does not play well, not just in wisconsin but even in his own district. so clearly wiscon
? >> well, because we're told by our legal department that he violated the government ethics laws and he did not disclose where he's got a conflict of interest, his investments in delphi corporation. it's so hypocritical, as you said, for him to criticize the loan and go in like a vulture capitalist and buy the stock at a low price and extort general motors, costing the taxpayers more money. he and his friends at the vulture capitalist made as you said 3,000% to 4,000% return on their investment in delphi by holding up general motors and costing the government more money. >> all right. let's talk -- >> costing taxpayers more. >> let's talk about this extort and hold up general motors. now, delphi is critical to the automobile manufacturing business. they, of course, manufacture parts that go into automobiles with general motors that they just couldn't make the vehicles without delphi's assistance. is that correct? >> right. if the parts don't come in, they can't build the cars. >> okay. so what happened here? what did romney's group do that was so terrible? >> well, they bought up the stock
